GARVEY DEMOLITION MAKE THE CHANGE TO LEHNHOFF
Garvey Demolition have made the switch to Lehnhoff, benefiting from just a 15 second changeover between their hydraulic attachments.
Garvey have invested in 4 Lehnhoff Fully Automatic Variolock Quickouplers for all of their 22 ton machines, and adapted 18 attachments – a mix of pulverisers, munchers, buckets and grabs. They have also added a brand new Rotar Rotating Grab and an RDP32 Pulverisor for their 50 tonne machine to their range.
Garvey Demolition’s experience in large scale demolition is second to none. Based in Shropshire, their highly trained workforce have years of experience demolishing multi-storey brick, concrete and steel structures, clearing sites and recycling waste material.
Garvey decided to make the change to Fully Automatic Quickcouplers as they could see the huge benefits. They wanted to keep up with the evolution in the demolition industry and stay ahead of the game.
Oliver Barby, Garvey’s Contracts and Safety Director, researched the market. He spoke with Sean Heron at Worsley Plant, and also compared Lehnhoff with other Quickcouplers available. His key considerations were threefold: safety, 15 second changeover, and no more broken pipes.
He made the decision to go with Lehnhoff based on the high quality of the product. The design and engineering stood out over the competition. He saw it as a better, stronger, more innovative product. Not only that but he was impressed with the Worsley Plant proposition and their customer service levels.
Oliver says: “Our 22 ton machines make up about 40% of our fleet. Eventually we plan to add Lehnhoff to our 14 and 50 ton machines. Adapting to Lehnhoff is a big investment for us, but based on the quality of the product and the back up from Worsley Plant, we are looking forward to reaping the future benefits.”
